List Is Ambient

1Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music for Airports

We begin... at the beginning.
2 Eluvium
When I Live in the Garden by the Sea

Bitches listed this as an LP. Contains some classic Tom Hanks in "As I Drift Off". Really moving, among the best Eluvium's done
3A Winged Victory for the Sullen
A Winged Victory for the Sullen

Reviewed. Maybe one day I'll make a list without this album.

5 MONO / World's End Girlfriend
Palmless Prayer / Mass Murder Refrain

Violin + Piano = happy Stranger.
6Olafur Arnalds
Eulogy For Evolution

More "classical/ post-rock which is effectively ambient because genres are allowed to overlap since listing a 3-d spectrum with 2-d categories does not work" *breath*
7Stars of the Lid
The Ballasted Orchestra

Drooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeee- mmmmmmmmmmmmmhmmmmyeh.
8Natural Snow Buildings
The Dance of the Moon and the Sun

DroooooooooooooFOLKooooooooooooACOUSTICooooooooooooFOLKooooo ooooonnnneeee.
9Richard Skelton

Reviewed. Really atmospheric folk-ambient, recreating the lonely woodland of northern England.
10Carbon Based Lifeforms
World of Sleepers

Not so much woodland as tropical rain-forest. Acid influences and environmental soundbites ("what about the forests?") strewn all over the place. Good stuff.
11The Future Sound of London

12Solar Fields
Leaving Home

Reviewed. A journey through outer-space where you skip all the parts in between the awesome.
13Benn Jordan
Pale Blue Dot

Similar to above, but goes about it in a more traditional drone way.

Look at the album cover, that's what the album is like.
The Lonely Robot

More nice and warm and fuzzy and friendly ambient.
16Tim Hecker
Harmony in Ultraviolet

We are not worthy.
17 Emeralds
Does It Look Like I'm Here?


Psybient time!!one! Amazingly relaxing, and goes down well with the wannabe-rasta crowd. Creeps in a bit of dance in places, which surprises.
Tales of the Inexpressible

Moar psybient.
20Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Getting all the classics out the way.
Volume Alpha

Been plundering in to soundtracks recently, some great stuff has come up.
22Clint Mansell, Kronos Quartet & Mogwai
The Fountain OST

Let's be honest, it's a stretch to call this whole album ambient, but just know that if I dies during "Death is the Road to Awe" I probably wouldn't notice.
23Wendy Carlos
A Clockwork Orange

For when things go all horror show, brother.
24Akira Yamaoka
Silent Hill 2

Speaking of horror.
25Atrium Carceri

Oh shit oh shit oh shit hidehidehidehidehidehide!

Is it safe to come out yet?

28The Future Sound of London
Dead Cities

Easing out now. It's too good to hide yourself away from.
29 Nicolas Jaar
Don't Break My Love

Still on edge, things are getting more active now though.
30Oneohtrix Point Never

Now this takes a lot of time to wrap your head around. Worth it though.
31The Caretaker
An Empty Bliss Beyond This World

Take 20's dance hits and make them creepy. His artist page tells me he has a new release out this year, will be jumping onto that when this list is done.
Bye Bye Gridlock Traffic

Reviewed. Some really warm, subtle brilliance from a pretty young guy. We're talking almost AFX levels of expertise.
Whisper Me Wishes

Classical/ techno/ ambient. The ratings are mostly bare for this guy, if you're into your The Flashbulb/ Aphex Twin/ anything on this list you'll love him.
Sines and Singularities

Maybe an little bit too fast, but fuck it.
Endless Summer

Tim Hecker-like. Maybe with a tiny bit less heavenly aura around it though.
Chasing After Shadows...Living with the Ghosts

Spectra and all that.
37Kashiwa Daisuke
Program Music I

These Japanese people and their minimalist classical... really have to start digging into more of this stuff.
38Klaus Schulze

Can we get a review for this from someone more competent than I am, please?
39Robag Wruhme
Thora Vukk

Warm, homespun techno type stuff from an absolute hero. "Cheese Cowboy" will be imbedded into your head after listening to "Ende". So cute.
40Sleep Research Facility
Deep Frieze

Just picked this up off the net after someone (Rev?) brought it up in someone else's list. Am digging hard.
41Max Richter

Tiny bit patchy, but there's some incredibly moving classical stuff on here.
42 Aes Dana

More organic ambient.
43Younger Brother
A Flock of Bleeps

This the same guy as Shpongle? Not a clue, fucking brilliant though.
New Age of Earth

Really soft, sleepy stuff.

Thought I'd sneak this in near the end. Drifts in and out of the genre, but it's an absolute masterpiece nonetheless.
46Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Symphony No 6. in B-Minor, Op. 74

Oh look at me I'm so fucking sophisticated.
47Robert Rich

7 hours. The Iron Man of ambient music.
48Natural Snow Buildings
Daughter of Darkness

6 hours! And it's pure drone this time!
49 Deaf Centre
Pale Ravine

Kind of cold and lonely, but beautiful nonetheless. Just like my ex-gir... I won't go there.
50Tangerine Dream

And to think I nearly forgot this.
